    Howdy all,

    I'm kind of wondering about all the apps that say they need access to my phone identity and full internet.

    Is there a network monitor utility that will log which app sent which data to which destination? I've searched for things like "network monitor" but all I get is general utilization monitors aimed at measuring the AMOUNT of network traffic.

    Thanks.

    John.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply.

    Boo, rooting, boo packet-sniffing, but... it's a start. (Something like wireshark with it's bazillion interpreting modules would be nice, and I'd hope the source port wouldn't be the same for everything, so I could identify the sending /process/, but....)

    John.
